Important News update
Various stretches of the club water are having or had issues with discolouration due to remedial work or emergency work being carried out by the EA or their contractors. The club board are aware of these issues which are totally out of the control of the club. The club is in discussion with the EA over these issues and the lack of communication by them regarding informing angling clubs of this work.
We understand that some planned work is to be carried out by the EA upstream of Escomb starting next week to remove concrete gabions etc we believe this is approximately 6 weeks overdue again this work is totally out of our control. The work is being carried out due to HSE guidance and human life is more important that fish stock. We are trying to ensure that there is minimum disruption to the clubs waters.
We are aware that many questions need to be raised to the EA, but these will be done at the appropriate time by the club and our legal representatives.

A lot of the beats consist of double bank fishing allowing good access to all our waters. The Board of BADAC are committed to continuously developing the fishing for our members and we have a team of hard working bailiffs committed to maintaining the river banks.
